this is me.

i am trp, known to some as the rising page, and to others as Devyn Princess.

i love babies and i have recently fallen in love with being pregnant. i cannot get over what it would feel like to have a baby grow inside of you, poke you, wake you up at midnight. i overwhelmed with sadness when i see mothers struggling with children in public transport, worse still fathers carry their little ones in the pouring rain making their way home.

i love great design, and in fact this afternoon i shall be going over to the craft market to buy a medallion i saw – well may be i’ll buy two instead. when i was 7 years young, i fell in love with computers, told my dad that i would work with them when i became older – alas, that is exactly what i am doing. in as much as i love design as a whole, website design always intrigues me more. i was introduced to adobe flash by these talented people, you can call me a flash junkie – i love any excuse to use it. actual website development without using flash has been a playing field for me over the past 12 months – teaching myself, stumbling along the way, getting frustrated and fighting with my computer during the long nights but I love it all the same.

i greatly admire people who are living out their dreams, i totally love people who act on the call of God on their lives. i love people who are a part of something, something bigger than themselves. i love people who push themselves and are constantly redefining their limit. i’m constantly in my itunes listening to inspiration from everywhere – music, podcasts, audio books. some of the people that love and absolutely adore are charity water, addmaya, design kingdom, oasis la church, hillsong london, catalyst leadership, newspring church, celebration church… to mention but a few. recently, i visited the charity water site and I noticed that their logo is actually in lowercase with a full stop. (yes like that one). So this entire post is dedicated to charity water and all her initiatives…

i believe i have been called cheeky, not really sure what this means. my heart has been broken several times to the point i’m not sure there is much left. i still believe in old skool love – the brown sugar kind – all consuming & immersive kind and as i wait, i shall be working me out – preparing me for the experience of a lifetime, yes – i am also a hopeful romantic.

i love writing; to be able to create something, imagine it and accurately express it to someone else; oooohh! may be i just like creating. i make funny faces everytime i am infront of a mirror, i like a diverse range of music – mix and mash everything together.

sometimes when i’m walking down a road and you see me smile for no apparent reason, know that i’m having a chat with my abba and he is just doing his thing. i love him and the love he has for me, i cannot even begin to explain.

i cry in the rain and on the bathroom floor, i love javas fries and icecream sundae (the one that comes with brownies). i love my friends completely and totally and would do anything for them.

i am a true melancholic.

and you?

i realise i have gone overboard, but this was started by the fabulous Angela Kintu over at hers. so please join us on this self discovery path of who we are, seeing as i am good at following instructions i shall let you know the upside of this…

on a separate line of awesomeness. If you do this for me, it will be the equivalent of signing my bra.

Now, all of you, if you do not do this in like the next 235 minutes, you will have four years of fleas and a kitten somewhere will die from being sat on by a Transformer.

The Edge of Who I Am

The original plan for this post was to put up a ‘critic’ (if that is what they call it) of Titanic II… Seriously, if you haven’t watched it and your Movie Guy suggests that you will like it – It’s time to change Movie Guy. If your subscription TV station decides to play it – Don’t renew your subscription next month. AND if you enjoyed it – as did the person next to me – I suggest you take a vacation from my blog 🙂 (Yes, I am being serious)

Like I said that was the original plan – but now, I am kindda a drift between emotion and bearing. Purpose and Busy-ness. Can you differentiate the two? Do you know your purpose in life? Does it keep changing depending on the current season? Do you even have seasons? Is it worth it, have a purpose? Is your purpose just busy-ness masquerading under an elaborate title?

Haha – yes, this is one of those posts, and if you don’t like it – feel free not to return. Go off and read something else, somewhere else. This is my space on Sir Tim’s vision and I determine what I write on it.

GOSH! I am so tired of having to prove myself to everyone…and then doing it and then you get shocked. Why am I even making time for this, allowing it to become part of my process?? LOL, I keep asking why am i gripping it so tight? Why am I holding on with every breath that I have left in me?

This is me letting go – This is me doing my free fall… You have a choice, you can catch me if you can – but i am not telling you to…

When I get to the bottom – I will walk…
